Registrations open for CETS2017

Learn about neutron scattering and how you can benefit from using neutrons on 8 – 12 May 2017 at the 11th Central European Training School on neutron techniques in Budapest. Apply by March 15.

Date: 13/02/2017


Dates: May 8-12, 2017
Venue: Csillebérc Campus (former KFKI) of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Hungary

CETS provides insight into neutron scattering techniques and their application for studies on structure and dynamics of condensed matter. Comprehensive experimental skills and guidance in result interpretation are going to be conveyed. The school will be a forum for the presentation and discussion of actual research works of young scientists.

Since the restart of the refurbished Budapest Research Reactor in 1992 international meetings are regularly organised in order to promote the national and Central European regional user activity, to contribute to instrument development as well as to facilitate the access of new users. Using the experimental stations, training of students and newcomers to the field is also regularly held for Hungarian university groups. Since 1999 a yearly joint Austrian-Hungarian training course used to be organised as well. Since February 2000 the cold neutron research facility is in operation, a liquid hydrogen cold source and the adjoining supermirror neutron guides provide excellent research opportunities on six experimental stations located in the neutron guide hall and the reactor hall. Therefore, the regular Austrian-Hungarian training course was extended, and we offer the possibilities of the cold neutron instruments for a hands-on-training for the European user community.

Anticipated attendance

We are welcoming PhD and master students, post-doc scientists as well as newcomers to the neutron research from the field of structural research in physics, chemistry, biology, material science etc. The number of participants is limited to 25 (because of the training facilities available). There is no limit for the theoretical lectures.

Application and SINE2020 support

For registering to CETS2017 please fill in the Application form available on the school website, not later than 15th March 2017. The selection will be made according to the CV, interest to use BNC facilities, poster or lecture presentation at the School.

Thanks to SINE2020 support, grants are available in limited number to contribute to travel and/or accommodation (maximum 6 nights), local transport and lunch expenses for young scientists/students. Please notify your grant request on the Application form.

Presenting a poster will be highly appreciated in the selection of attendees and grant awards!

Views from 2013 participants

The former neutron and muon project NMI3 has been to the 2013 school edition and talked with the participants and organisers. To find out about the school participants experience watch the video!
